Root canal is an effective treatment for patients suffering from tooth infection. It helps retain your natural tooth and avoid tooth extraction. When your tooth becomes infected due to cavities or cracks, a root canal treatment can ease the pain and make your mouth healthy again. Come to Northland Village Dental Centre for routine oral care and a root canal in Calgary. We accept new patients. Our team is committed to help our patients maintain their oral health and provide them with the best possible care they deserve.
Understand Root Canals
Each tooth has a tissue-filled space inside called the pulp. This pulp is sensitive, and it becomes infected when bacteria eat through a tooth's enamel and affect the tissues within. When this happens, you need a root canal to remove the affected pulp and seal the tooth again.
Here's what you can expect from the procedure:
Our dentist will create an opening in your tooth to access the infected or decaying pulp. We will remove the tissue and sanitize the inside of your tooth to prevent further decay and possible tooth loss. We will then fill the space with a permanent material called gutta-percha to keep the tooth healthy and intact.
Benefits of Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is an alternative to tooth extraction and helps preserve your natural teeth. Your dentist might recommend this treatment if your tooth pulp is infected. If you have been experiencing a severe toothache, swelling or tenderness in the gum, consult our dentists immediately. Advantages of root canal treatment are:
• Improves the functionality of your teeth
• Prevents infections from spreading
• Helps avoid further complications
• Reduces pain and discomfort
